Fire Line Complete on Rogue River a Drive Fire

Bulldozers completed a fire line today around the 584-acre Rogue River Drive Fire, south of Shady Cove, and more than 200 firefighters assigned to the fire are rolling out hoses so hot spots can be quickly extinguished.

Equipment assigned to the fire includes 11 engines, 10 bulldozers and 6 water tenders. The fire is 40 percent contained. 

The lightning-caused fire broke out Monday, was encircled by fire line early Tuesday, then breached its containment line that afternoon and grew to its present size.

Structural firefighters called to the area overnight to assist with home protection were released mid-afternoon today.
